Maggie Walker yearns for the one thing she’s never truly felt: love. After years of rejection and abandonment, the shy and timid Nurse found that running felt right and provided her with the solitude she needed to avoid the haunting memories of her past.
Keeping to her routines and having complete control of her life, made things easier, but not more exciting. When chance steps in, it throws the unexpected in her path in the form of a handsome stranger named Charlie.
Charlie Hennings lives under the pressure of expectation. When forced to follow in his father’s footsteps as an FBI Agent, he left behind part of himself and the chance to embrace his dreams, which included settling down and starting a family.
When his latest endeavor lands him in an undercover position in Brown County, he never expects to find the one person he couldn’t live without, who also ironically ends up being directly connected to his current assignment.
Throughout their journey, Charlie makes it his personal mission to help Maggie break out of her shell and convince her that she deserves all the love in the world. But when Charlie’s lies are brought to light regarding his job, will it destroy everything they’ve been working toward?
Can Maggie overlook his deceit and let herself experience these new feelings of love or will she just runaway from it all?

My Review: 4 stars
I thought this was a great story, and an interesting question to pose in a book. If you knew that your actions, although pure, would be called into question at a later date because you held back information about your job that requires you to keep it a secret? Would you take that risk for the love of a lifetime? Charlie did. I've got to say, reading the character development in this book was really good. For Amber to bring shy, introverted Maggie to being such a fiesty, spunky woman who stood up for her friends and to her friends. That's courage. I loved Charlie and Maggie together, they belonged that way. There are a lot of things that happen, and those things bring Maggie to question whether anything she had with Charlie was real, because he held back information about his job. What will Maggie choose??
I am a wife, mother of two beautiful girlies, an avid reader, and a new Romance and New Adult author.
I was born and raised in Southern Indiana, but resided in Texas for five years while my husband was in the US Army. It was definitely a journey, but I am so glad to be back in my home state.
Whenever I'm not doing my motherly duties or at the soccer field I absolutely love to read whenever I have a moment to spare. My kindle is never far from my side.
My love of reading increased about a year ago and due to my love of books I decided to try my hand at writing. Already having a set of characters screaming to get out, my story took over and came to life.
